How many dentists do your family members visit? If it's more than one, you may benefit from making the switch to a family dentist. Marion, family dentistAR family dentist Dr. Wayne Cook shares a few reasons you'll want to consider choosing just one dentist for your family's dental needs.

There are no age restrictions with family dentists

As their name implies, family dentists handle the dental needs of everyone in your family, from toddlers to senior citizens. If your children currently see a pediatric dentist, they'll eventually age out of the practice. They won't have to worry about conducting a search for a new dentist when they visit a family dentistry practice.

Family dentists understand your changing dental needs

Family dentists offer the expertise and skill your family needs to maintain and protect their smiles. Developmental issues that can occur during childhood can impact your children for the rest of their lives if the issues aren't detected and treated promptly. Family dentists evaluate the growth and development of your child's teeth and jaw during checkups and make treatment recommendations if any problems are detected.

Your family dentist offers a variety of treatments needed to restore decayed, damaged or lost teeth, such as fillings, crowns, root canal therapy, bridges, dentures and dental implants. Family dentists also provide a range of cosmetic services. Dull teeth can be lightened with teeth whitening or the application of dental veneers. If you don't like the shape or appearance of a tooth, your family dentist can improve the way the problem tooth looks simply by adding a crown or veneer or applying bonding material.

Visiting a family dentist makes sense if you have a jam-packed schedule

When your life is hectic, it's not easy to find enough time to visit more than one dentist. Keeping track of multiple appointments and driving your family members all over Marion isn't the most efficient of your time. When you choose a family dentist, you can schedule one visit for the entire group.

Caring for your family's oral healthcare needs is easy when you choose a family dentist. Call Marion, AR family dentist Dr. Cook at (870) 739-8799 to schedule your family's appointment.
